How do I forward email from my University Gmail account to another email account?
- Open your University Gmail account on a computer. (Forwarding cannot be set up using the Gmail mobile application.)
- In the top right of the screen, click the Settings symbol (which looks like a cog)
- Click the Settings option in the menu that appears
- Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
- In the "Forwarding" section, click Add a forwarding address.
- Enter the email address you want to forward messages to
- Click Next
- A pop-up window will appear asking for confirmation of the forwarding address. This only confirms the proposed email address and does not start email forwarding. The forwarding is set up in a later step.
- Click Proceed then OK in the pop-up box.
- A verification message will be sent to that email address. Click the verification link in the message received. This will launch a web page requesting confirmation.
- Click Confirm to allow Gmail to send emails to that forwarding address
- Go back to the settings page for your university Gmail account (steps 2 & 3 above)
- Refresh your browser.
- Select Forward a copy of incoming mail to and choose the email address that you just verified as a forwarding destination
- Now choose what you want to happen with the Gmail copy of your emails. We strongly recommend keeping a copy of the emails you forward from your university Gmail account to ensure that you always have a safe copy of emails received. You may wish to automatically move them to a Gmail folder for safekeeping.
- At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes
- Your emails will now be forwarded to your chosen email destination
Google offers further instructions on how to disable forwarding, how to forward only certain emails and other related queries.
